• Purchase of new Austrian trains turns out not to be valid due to invali

    Hi all,


    "The Austrian railways are embarrassed. An order for new double-decker
    trains from Stadler turns out to be invalid. The Swiss digital signature
    does not appear to be valid in the EU.

    Judge discovers blunder

    The Austrian court has come to that conclusion , Der Standard reports .
    The ruling follows an objection by Alstom to the award of the order to
    Stadler. The objections that the French had, however, do not appear to
    be the stumbling block. It was the judge himself who discovered the error.

    Stadler had signed the [quotation] with a digital signature, but not
    with the correct one because the Swiss version of the electronic
    signature is not recognized in the EU. Although Switzerland is closely
    linked to the EU through bilateral agreements, the digital signature
    does not appear to be valid in Austria."
